Family History Beginners Board / Hobart - Ireland
« on: Saturday 18 May 19 18:15 BST (UK)  »
Hi everyone, I have been doing some research for my dads friend, as he knows nothing of his dads family. All he has is his dads birth certificate and a story of how he fled to England from the Irish army? but he doesn't know when that was and he died in Leicester in 2008. His birth certificate says he was born Michael Hobart 1926 castlegregory, Ireland to parents Liam hobart and bridget Ashe. I think James hobart and Catherine walshe were liam/William's parents but I can't find anything of there births, marriage or deaths. I found a few brothers and sisters of William but it looks like a few ended up in America and a few in hammersmith London, not sure if any stayed in Ireland or how many there were but it's very hard to find strong leads. Ultimately the goal is to find any living relatives possibly cousins for him to speak too.
Thank you in advance to anyone how can help or advise where to look. :)

Hello, I haven't been here for quite a while but I would really appreciate any help at all. I have been trying for the last year (and wasting money) to track down my 5x great grandad,  George Greaves mother and father but I can't!!! I know he married Elizabeth Glencross at Ulverston 1807, I have a pallot record but the only info on it is he's a 'Waller' which would fit perfectly as every generation after him were stonemasons. I found a record on LANCAT that says he was 25 years old when he married Elizabeth but then it seems Elizabeth died in ulverston in 1816 and he remarried an ellinor the same year in ulverston but aged 32, his occupation Waller. It also seems he died in ulverston 1839. So it would make his birth 1782-1784? But I can find nothing in ulverston? I emailed the parish to see if theres any sort of marriage certificate for a father's name but no reply. Im hoping the wallers/stonemasons continue even further back than George. Please help me as its driving me insane x

World War Two / WW2 Royal Artillery William Greaves

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knows anything of my grandad William Greaves in WW2. From what i remember he was a WO ll in the Royal Artillery 70th Field 46th Division (North Midland). I know he had medals but I don't know which ones. He was in North Africa and Italy. But I was wondering if any one had any photos, stories or just anything else to bring his character to life.

Many Thanks,
Shell

Thank you both again. I think I will have to get her birth certificate. Where would I order it from?

Thank you so much to you both. I signed up for Ancestry.co.uk ages ago and susan/susanna Hernden's birth isn't even on there?

Any other bits of info would be gratefully received. It's an absolute mystery to me. I did find a death reference to a James Hernden a year after Susan was born, don't know if it's her dad or not. Don't know how he died.

Thank you again :)

Family History Beginners Board / Help! Susan Hernden, Grimsby.
« on: Thursday 16 August 12 17:51 BST (UK)  »
I can find no record of my great grandmother's birth. I have my grandmothers birth certificate Clarice Harding born Leicester 1928. Her father was Harry Harding (found his family). Her mother states Susan Chase formerly Hernden, born Grimsby abt 1891. I have found both marriage references both to Sidney Chase in Caistor and my great grandad Harry Harding in Caistor. But nobody knows who Susan's mum and dad were or where the Hernden name came from? Can anyone please help. There were rumors in the family that he came from Goa? but I'm not sure and have no one left in the family to ask. Also I can not afford to buy the marriage certificates as her father might not be on them.

Any help would be brilliant.
